A new pitch for the Stade Vélodrome27 jan 2014
Since last Friday, the Botanica Sports company has been looking after the pitch at the Stade Vélodrome. Before the postponed match against Valenciennes, a first part of the pitch was changed. After the visit of Nice in the Cup, a second part of the pitch was changed. As well as the pitch being sanded and spiked, the drainage system at the base of the Jean Bouin Stand was also changed. On Monday, the first rolls of new pitch were laid.
